Assistant Professor

University of Toronto

I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto and founding member of the Toronto Computational Imaging Group. My work is at the intersection of machine learning, computational imaging, and computer vision. Along these lines I’ve worked on next-generation computational imaging systems for imaging around corners and through scattering media, and new machine learning algorithms for representing and processing signals. My work is relevant to a broad range of applications in computer graphics, vision, and remote sensing.

Students interested in joining my group starting in fall 2025 should apply to the Department of Computer Science. More on this page.

I’m looking for postdocs! See this page .
